Free daily ATS lock pick just released: ‘100% confidence release!’

What’s Going To Happen

It’s the West championship, even though Tulane and SMU have the same conference records as Memphis.

If the Tigers win, they go back to the American Athletic Conference title game where they’ll face UCF in a rematch of last year’s classic – and the close call from earlier this season. If the Cougars pull this off, it’ll be a terrific comeback after losing two straight and needing to beat Tulane to stay alive.

Memphis might be known for its high-powered passing games, but it’s been the running game that’s taken over the season with 200 yards or more against everyone but Tulane.

Even with Ed Oliver healthy in the middle, the Houston defensive front isn’t anything special. Of course, it’s better when he’s playing – and he’s been out for most of the last month – but the Cougars have given up close to 200 yards or more on the ground in each of the last five games. Memphis is seventh in the nation in total offense, but …

Houston is fourth, but star QB D’Eriq King is out for the season with a knee injury.

RB Patrick Carr will have to do more coming off a big game against Tulane, and the passing game needs something out of Clayton Tune, who might not be the runner or all-around baller that King is, but he’s got tremendous potential as a passer.

Now he’ll have to turn it loose.

The Cougar defense will step it upset enough to see this from getting too crazy, but King was the catalyst. Houston will make it fun in a bit of a shootout, but Memphis will be more consistent and do more on third downs on the way to another West title.
